At the dyno stand, the Lexus LFA supercar was tested. The car has a spectacularly growling V-shaped engine with ten cylinders.

Japanese supercar Lexus LFA debuted in 2011 after nearly a decade of development by leading engineers from Toyota and Lexus. This stunning supercar received a powerful V10 engine, developed jointly with Yamaha, and a body consisting mainly of carbon materials.

The Lexus LFA was created to be a symbol of technology for the premium brand Lexus, which lacked a sports car in its lineup. There wasn’t enough a car that personified the entire engineering power of the automaker. The production of the supercar ended in 2012 and today we want to remind you of the amazing roar of a powerful engine in this car.

Under the hood of a powerful supercar is a 4.8-liter V10 1LR-GUE engine.

 This unique engine was developed in conjunction with Yamaha engineers who also helped tune the exhaust system acoustics. The 1LR-GUE can spin up to 9,000 rpm and produce a respectable 553 horsepower and 479 Nm of torque.

  One of the main features, one might say, of the iconic supercar, was not so much power as its fantastic handling. For today, the performance is 531 hp. (479 Nm) are not particularly impressive – modern supercars can boast much greater performance.
